This is my fourth FabFitFun box. Going into this one, I thought, “Ugh. Another one.” We could chalk it up to stress, overwhelm or just plain video burnout, but on the other hand, I knew I could at least look at this video and blog review as a blessing…right?
Well, that is exactly what it was. I don’t remember adding the Mystery box this time around, but I have to say that my favorite item came from it! Once I got the box on my doorstep, I couldn’t wait to open it and see what was inside.
So yes, today IS wedding day, but no. I did not shoot, edit, and write all of this within a day or two of my wedding day. No, this one has been in the can for a week now. I’m off enjoying time with friends and family…and if I could get away with it, I’d have you there, too. Thought about going live at the wedding, but I thought that would be tacky.
Inside the Mystery Box
ISH shadow color palette — These colors are so amazing and so dramatic, that I didn’t dare try to apply them on my own. Find me @hlmusic73 on Instagram to see pics!
Marie Jewelry necklace — This sweet little choker-style necklace goes with almost everything. I love getting smaller, understated pieces like this.
African Botanics Shower Cream — This mild and earthy-scented shower cream has a light exfoliant to it, sloughing off summer sun damage and smoothing the skin. Feels really good!
Inside the Fall edition Box:
Mer-Sea & Co. Scarf — Retail $98
This is a super-cozy scarf, but since it’s still summer-like temps here in Colorado, I’m not sure how soon I’ll be using this. I love it, and do plan on wearing it a lot, especially if I make a dramatic change to my hairstyle (like chop it all off).
Private Party Gym Bag — $59
I love this bag, but since I have many bags similar, this one may show up in a giveaway in the future…say at an upcoming race weekend? Stay tuned!!
IMM Living Coxet Wire Heart Ceramic Jewelry Holder — $33
What a cute little jewelry stand! It wasn’t long before I had it set up on my vanity so I could keep tabs on my most-commonly worn necklaces! It’s not so big as to be overwhelming, but the design keeps everything in place!
Deco Miami Lavender Cuticle Oil — $12.50
While I don’t take care of my nails much, I love this cuticle oil! Might end up in the aforementioned Gym Bag for a giveaway?
Whish Beauty Renewing Mud Mask — $48
The warning on this product is that it is similar to a microdermabrasion peel, and may sting or burn in a similar fashion, but I didn’t get that at all. It feels mild, but definitely deep cleans. My skin after only a couple of uses was more supple and glowing…ready for wedding day!
MyTagAlongs Hot and Cold Gel Pack — $15
Considering the amount of time I sit at my computer, this one has already come in handy. I’ve also been fighting off headaches and other issues that plague a mom in her forties. I need at least 3 more of these things. One cold one for my head, one hot one for my neck, one cold one for my calf…you get the picture.
Trestique Matte Color & Shiny Balm Lip Crayon — $28
This is a great color, and I love the compactness of this. With the Lip Crayon and the Lip Balm in Florence Fig, it’s the perfect color for almost anything!
Cottonelle FreshCare Flushable Cleansing Cloths — sponsored item
After opening this, I started to think…”Wait, what?” I’m not sure what FabFitFun thinks is going on in our bathrooms that we need this, but…yeah…okay.
Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse — $35
Okay, yes. For a minute my hair smelled like salad dressing, but only for a minute. I was pleasantly surprised at how soft my hair was after I washed with this stuff. I was expecting either an oily residue or a weird scent left behind, but I am amazed by how silky my hair feels!
B-Low the Belt Mia Belt — $55
This is my new belt of choice. It goes with everything I own.
Total value of the FabFitFun Fall edition box: $383.50
I have one more box on my FabFitFun Subscription, and I’ll get that just before Christmas. I’m not sure I’ll be renewing this subscription, as it’s almost run its course. But what do you think? What was your favorite item?
